Consulting for International Donors

 

We are committed to support relevant UN organizations and leading international institutions in shaping post-2012 carbon trading mechanisms in a way that is more inclusive of agriculture and forestry projects of relevance to the rural poor, with a focus on safeguarding food security and environmental services.

 

  • We conduct research and development on behalf of UN agencies, analyzing climate change impacts, adaptation and mitigation strategies, the role of carbon markets, with a focus on agriculture and forestry projects of relevance to the rural poor. We are proposers of the "Adaptation Carbon" standard.
